Loved the outside- the trains are neat. The inside of the brewery is small. We went on a weekend- tours were sold out both days and we went around 2-3pm! They give you a complimentary sample of beer, my boyfriend and I thought "awesome!!" But the beer tastes similar to Keystone Light or Coors Light (Though I should warn thee-... More

I've never been before despite this being my 10th visit to Toronto! The tour was really informative, fun and you get a bottle of beer to drink on the way round plus a choice of gifts when you book. A good way to spend an hour or so and actually good beer too.

Walked across the street to Steam Whistle Brewery, one of Canada's newest premium beer micro-breweries. One the waterfront in Toronto, right across the street from the CN Tower, Ripley's Aquarium of Canada, and the SkyDome (Rogers Center), it's in a great location. The brewery is in a converted railroad roundhouse, and the tracks are still in place, as is the... More

We liked the samples and the tour was really interesting. Our tour guide was great...didn't even sound like he had done the tour a hundred times. I don't like beer, but the process is neat, and the story behind this neat company is a good one.

The customer service was excellent! I walked in and immediately was offered a sample without the pressure of committing. I enjoyed their brew and asked for the pint (the smallest size available). The staff was friendly and so were the patrons. Seemed like a chill place.

Enjoy the Roundhouse Park prior to going to Steam Whistle. Get there early, tours fill-up quickly. The tour is brief, but for the $10 you also get beer and a survivor so its worth it. Focus is on the history of Steam whistle, with less attention to brewing process.

We were drawn to this brewery because it looked interesting. Its in a converted train yard. We had a blast. The brewery has done an excellent job maintaining the architecture. Beer was good and cheap

I had so much fun while visiting! The admission is so cheap, less than $10 each; you get a bunch of free bonus' that more than make the price worthwhile - from a free glass and bottle opener with the ticket price, to upgrading your admission and getting a crate of beer! Not to mention a full cold bottle of... More

I was shown round in a small group by Alex who was a really enthusiastic and knowledgable host who took forty mins or so to show us the ropes. We had quite a few free samples and the history about the building was very interesting. Well done guys.
